Learning Objectives Be able to define the following terms: genetic polymorphism, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), types of mutations: deletion, insertion, substitution, silent, frameshift Be able to explain why polymorphisms may or may not have an impact on the phenotype of an organism Know what frameshift mutations are and why these have dramatic phenotypes Be able to identify and draw examples of different types of polymorphisms Be able to describe how restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) are generated and used to identify diseases, crime victims, and criminals Also, how DNA microarrays are the current technique of choice

Polymorphism The coexistence in a population of multiple alleles at a given locus Allele? Same gene, different nucleotide sequences

Polymorphisms “Polymorphism” simply refers to differences in DNA sequences that occur in a population We’ll discuss in lecture 15 how these differences are generated

Types of polymorphisms SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) Can be substitutions, deletions, insertions Larger deletions/insertions VNTRs (variable number of tandem repeats)
